What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The use of complicated machinerv. steam arid elec­ tricity has had the effect of increasing biliiies.

Wbera Saving* Resulted. Havings in the method of printing the paper money of the country have been made to the extent of $<!<Yi.U0rt ariini ally, while similar work in the mints has resulted i:i cutting down the ex­ penses annually to Hie extent of $4CI,';.- 000. By using the mails Instead of the express a saving of $00,000 a year is effected in sending wornout notes to the treasury for redemption. Nearly $ 50,000 a year is being saved through improved methods in handling the pa­ per on which money and postage and internal revenue stamps is printed. A similar amount is being saved through closer scrutiny and economy in print- ing^the stationery for the deparinieut.. The revenue cutter service adds to the fist a saving of $100,000 a year with in­ creased activities, so trio does the pub rider*', tD k lie health service. There are many more details of savings, all telling the same story. Canuin* Reform* Made. And this story is rhe strongest kind of a denial o f the charge that Presi­ dent Taft has used the government employee to further his own political advantage. There bare been 1.S01 ua- netessary places abolished under the treasury department to the last three years. Five hundred and forty-two of these, have been in the department service in tTasfetogioa.
